. cnn's barbara starr is following that story from the pentagon. good morning. >> good morning, soledad. well, look, at least at this point, there's no indication publicly of a national security breach. but that doesn't mean the questions aren't growing. lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are questioning the timing behind the revelation. house majority leader eric cantor said an fbi employee told him in october about the petraeus affair. by that time an fbi investigation was already under way. the fbi told the director of national intelligence james clapper on election night, according to a senior u.s. intelligence official. the white house says it was notified the day after the election, and the president the following day. that doesn't make sense to house homeland security chairman peter king. >> this seems to have been going on for several months yet now it appears they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up. >> "the new york times" reports the fbi actually started its investigation late this summer. the h

and that's got to be balanced. it has to include revenues and squeezing the pentagon a bit and obviously, maybing some entitlement reforms. if the leap adership an preside can negotiate that, that's great, but the worst option would be if they failed to negotiate and i'm a real skeptic, then the worst thing we could do is change the date from january 1 to say august or september. that would send a terrible signal to the markets. congress once again dodging its responsibilities and our responsibilities to come up with something that's durable and sustainable. if january 1 comes then, it's not so much a cliff as it is a slope. we would be under enormous pressure to come up with that balanced deal, so my view is much better for us to get a good, durable deal that is achieved before and after january 1. >> so, congressman, you know, i never want to hear the term fiscal which i have again. i mean, the election sent a mandate. we want something done. >> you're right about that and if the leadership and the president are able to negotiate and we get it done, that would be the best thing. but yo

, but there will be some scarring about this even here at the pentagon, the four-star general officer corps reeling from this. this man was idolized and yet also looked at a bit askance his personality by the military. he was known to think very highly of himself, and that caused him some problems. so this will begin to have ramifications. i think one of the fundamental questions here, piers, is the four-star jenz generals in this country. petraeus was always a four-star general. they are coddled, they have cadres of aides around him, he continued to live that existence at the cia, perhaps leading to some fundamental questions. we've sign lot of these scandals -- >> let me take a short break. these are fascinating stories with more and more details breaking every moment. as we continue to talk about general petraeus, i'm so sorry we haven't heard back from either of them. where others fail, droid powers through. introducing the new droid razr maxx hd by motorola. now more than ever droid does. to take a centrum silver multivitamin every day. i told him, sure. can't hurt, right? then i heard this news ab

pentagon correspondent, in which she stocked to petraeus' spokesman while he was in iraq and the question was how is holly doing and the answer was furious would be an understatement. >>> joining us, our senior political analyst, david gergen. he's known both general petraeus and paula broadwell for several year, has communicated with both of them electronically since the scandal broke. also joining us, howard kurtz, the host of "reliable sources" also the washington bureau chief for "newsweek" and "the daily beast." first of all, david gergen, let me go to you. you've communicated with general petraeus, with paula broadwell. what are they saying? how are they doing? what do they have to relate? >> well, the communication had been private, wolf, and i had sent them notes of support when this news first broke because i have known both of them for a long time. i know him better than i know paula, but i just think the world of him. he's been one of the finest leaders of his generation, warrior scholar, has done great service for this country. i was just -- this is so painful for him and for
's start with what kyra was saying, barbara starr, who is at the pentagon. she didn't know him ever to be flirtatious and said a number of his friends were describing paula broadwell as someone who is agreesive and works her magic as she ensnares men with her mayingness, i guess, all around. so i'm not really surprised that the general's friends would be spinning it this way. what insight can you give us on this? >> let me cut to the chase. kyra is absolutely right. two people involved, to say the least. when we know, soledad, is that general petraeus in the last several days has authorized personal personally several of his former aides to talk to the news media, including me. i have spoken to steve boylan, his former spokesman in iraq. steve tells me general petraeus authorized him to speak to the news media. first, let's be terribly clear. general petraeus still putting out his words, his version of events through many of his former military aides. as for miss broadwell, she will have to speak her piece when she chooses to. you know, i think that it's also worth absolutely noting
allen. pentagon officials say those e-mails may be inappropriate. the president and his defense chief sticking by allen whose nomination to lead nato forces is now on hold. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. general allen is doing an excellent job leading those forces. he has my continued confidence to lead our forces and continue the fight. but his nomination has been put on hold as a prudence measure until we determine what the facts are. and we will. martha: jill kelly who is being inundated with reporters at her tampa mansion, she even called 911 and asked for diplomatic protection. here is the 911 tape. >> i have a guy in my backyard and he's not leaving. if you can send somebody out. you know, by any chance, i'm an honorary counsel general. i don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well. it did get tense in a second call when kelley tells the dispatcher there is someone in her yard trying to get in the house. >> they are trying to push the door open, they won't leave. >> are you sure you don't know who these people are? >> i do not know who they ar
refer you to the pentagon for the process under way with regards to general allen. >> meantime, soledad, president obama will welcome dozens of business leaders to the white house today. some of whom support something he wants to do, which is increase taxes on the wealthy. obviously the white house is hoping that maybe that will convince some house republicans to budge on this a little bit. although i've talked to some republicans who say, don't count on that. soledad? >> all right. brianna keilar for us this morning. thanks, brianna. cnn's special coverage of the president's news conference will begin at 1:00 p.m. eastern time. wolf blitzer is hosting that, and we will obviously carry that for you live when it happens. want to talk a little bit more about the fiscal cliff. chief business correspondent ali velshi joins us. you heard brianna talk about this meeting with ceos about that. how much of that is pr and how much of that is really critical conversation? >> well, the very conservative leaders, and anti-tax leaders, have called the whole thing pr. they think it's giving the presid
, if there was a seven-hour gun battle for that consulate, that's not fast enough for the pentagon to react. it just isn't. i've been in those situations. you have to have the pieces in place before you can respond. i've heard the stories about laser designators and they could have called in air support. listen, to use military forces inside an independent country, a volatile one at that, takes, you know, weeks of planning in advance. somebody did drop the ball. but i just don't believe the thing that the military could have responded, could have sent f-16s down there to hit the targets. it takes a long time to set that up. >> when all is said and done, do we have the case of a watergate style cover-up here or do we just need the answers to some questions? >> david petraeus has those answers. he is out of the cia now. if he sits down and tells the truth as he knows it, doesn't shave off the edges, we will get our answers. and congress will, too. we take it from the next step. but somebody, i'm sorry, should be fired for benghazi. should have closed that place down. >> robert baer, former cia operative.
